're going to give you the last question, before we go to mike emanuel. >> i have a civilized question for mr. henry. >> and civilized-- >> my goodness, bob. >> it sounds worse than the negotiations on the hill. >> it's worse, thank goodness this wasn't our situation to try and strike a deal, it would be hopeless. if a deal is struck, how much will the deficit be redied, what kind of numbers are we talking about? >> it would be minuscule. where you'd see the biggest short-term impact would be if you eliminate all of the bush tax rates and they go back to the clinton rates. the government would be bringing in more revenue, but that's going to take some time. that's not going to happen immediately and it's a relatively small amount in terms of what the government is spending every single day. that money would be spent pretty quickly. so, again, because we're now at this point where this is just a short-term deal, any of the major entitlement reforms that would actually bring major spending cuts are sngsly off the table right now. so, to answer your question directly without pointing a finger at

, nbc white house correspondent mike viqueira. what's going on right now? >> reporter: furs of all house republican aides will tell you there's nothing to vote on. in that they would be entirely correct. we've been talking about the parameters of the deal and you have correctly outlined them as far as i understand them in terms of the income levels and the alternative minimum tax, the extension of unemployment benefit insurance and odd and ends of things that are important to the business community. some text breaks that are extended every year. tax breaks left over from the stimulus. there's a lot there for people to be happy about. the trouble is there's a little bit too much for people to be unhappy about. you remember the sequester, this term we've been throwing around washington now for about a year and a half. it was the result of that debt budget deal, that ceiling rise in july of 2011. they said if there was no deal to significantly reduce government spending by this time, midnight tonight, then there would be this draconian and indiscriminate cut across the board, 50% of it, $50

spokesperson says his condition has improved and he has been moved from intensive care. mike is standing by live at the hospital. >> reporter: a bit of welcome news as the former president is ending his time in the intensive care unit. that his condition continues to improve. a lost reason for optimism. he spent shy of a week in the intensive care it was described as a stubborn fever he had a difficult time shaking. nasty case of bronchitis that had the president hospitalized since the end of november. the spokespeople working with bush people have been optimistic throughout this process and his condition improves, all the way while taking the fact that he is an 88-year-old man sick. and noting the fact he is laughing and joking with the staff. even pointing out that yesterday at one point he was sing weigh the hospital staff. you know he got a pick me up from the oakridge boys fan and they sang a song to him. doctors feeling that his condition are so fragile they need to monitor him in the intensive care. >> gregg: it's a good sign when you are singing to the nurses. mike, thanks. >> gr

a smaller offer. for the latest, we bring in peter alexander from the white house and mike viqueira from capitol hill. peter, let's talk about what's going on at the white house meeting. i hear senators are optimistic about a mini deal which, of course, will raise taxes on those above $400,000. expand the amt, cut some spending. what are you hearing? >> reporter: well, hearing a lot of different things right now. one of the items and ruled by rumor and then denials and frustrations, toure. we know that we saw senators mcconnell and reid arriving a short time ago. we didn't pelosi and boehner arrive yet but the vice president joe biden got here a short time ago, as well. there's other reporting from the hill right now about the potential that the president is going to return to what was basically his original outlined plan. perhaps a smaller plan but a plan where the threshold would be set closer to $250,000 as he initially had before the $400,000 offer that john boehner the white house would contend walked away from when he proposed his $1 million threshold in this situation right now. t

for hospitals. bringing us together again up next, mike allen with the political playbook. here's dylan dryer with a check on the forecast. >> we're talking about more snow in the northeast. this time around this is not a big storm, maybe a few inches. winter storm advisories are posted from northern arkansas right through tennessee and up into the mid-atlantic region. where is the storm right now? through louisiana and arkansas bringing mostly rain to the area. as it moves eastward it will wrap into colder air. the bulk of the storm is it staying offshore. it looks like rain along the immediate coastline from cape cod, massachusetts down into southern new jersey. that dark shade of purple is where we could see 3 to 5 inches. you you go inland further away from the storm and it looks like 1 to 3 inch. just enough to make it slippery for the weekend. today looks real nice across the northeast. we'll dry it out and look for sunshine and a little chilly but it's the end sdechl after all. that's your latest forecast. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. this family used capital one
congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live at the capitol following all of the bouncing balls. hey, mike. >> reporter: one concern for republicans as they look at this deal is what about spending cuts? where are the spending cuts? it sounds like they are getting close in the talks between vice president joe biden and the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell but there is not a deal until senator mcconnell knows he has enough support. let's take a look at some of the key points of a framework of the deal according to sources close to the talks. it would raise taxes on income tax amounts above $400,000 for individuals, $450,000 for families. it would address the estate tax, the alternative minimum tax, the medicare doc fix and unemployment insurance. current discussions about how best to address the automatic spending cuts that is called sequestration, the automatic cuts to defense, and domestic programs. a short time ago a leading republican expressed a great deal of concern and frustration with the whole process. >> it's december the 31st. january 1st is tomorrow, 2013, taxes go up. e
being. we have fox coverage with wendell at the white house. but, first, mike is live on capitol hill. the senate leader is the -- actually, the minority leader, what is he telling colleagues? >>reporter: he said they are very, very close. he would like to take action to avoid having americans suffer a huge tax increase in a matter of ten hours. there are a lot of anxious senators walking around wondering if or when they will get a chance to vote on something. at 1:19 senator mcconnell sent this e-mail to the colleagues and i quote, "the tax piece is complete and done last evening at 1:45. i thought the deal was sealed but this morning the white house called demanding we also turn off the sequester, those are the automatic spending cuts, to against and domestic spending kicking in, in the new year." mcconnell has outside other ways to pay for several months of that so the new congress can work that out. he is senator mcconnell. >> i reached out to the vice president in an effort to get things done. i am happy to report the effort has been a successful effort. as the president just sai
from president obama today. first, chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel on what seems to have been settled and how and what is still up in the air at this late hour. hi, mike. >> hi. bret. we hear from the republican senators they are optimistic and hopeful that a vote can happen sometime, perhaps later tonight. senator mitch mcconnell e-mailed and said he thought the deal was done until the white house called to say the sequestered cuts should be turned off. since then, she trying to find a way to bye down months of the cut but says the tax issues shooting forward. >> we will continue to work on finding smarter ways to cut spending. but let's not let that hold up,be protecting americans from the tax hike that will take place. we can do this. we must do this. >> though it is down to the wire. >> it's december the 31. january 1 is tomorrow, 2013. taxes go up. >> frustrated senator john thune says the senate should have acted months ago to keep the u.s. economy going off the fiscal cliff. >> i find it really hard to sit and listen to people come up now and wring their hands and
in the last election, say mike lee or todd akin? >> yes, they had their misfires. but we have high participation and low democracy, what i mean by that is, washington's broken, the senate doesn't work, everything is filibustered and most seats are gerrymandered, if you are a republican, even with the tea party losses, you're more worried about running up against a tea party primary than facing competition in the general election. that's a deeper systemic problem that to their credit, whatever you think of their politics, the activists have learned how to endorse and get ahold of. >> it's not a grassroots movement, it was astroturf. does this indicate that again you have all these rich millionaire figures at the top arguing, book deals and buying out and being quiet. does it really belie the fact that this is not a grassroots movement or do you think that's inevitable with any group that's been funded by deep pocketed people? >> no, that's the problem, they have struggled to create a meaningful grassroots system within all the energy they have built. there are other groups and examp
from the 11th hour talks will be rushed through both chambers of congress. mike viqueira at capitol hill for us. is that possible at this point? >> reporter: it's possible. whether it's likely is an entirely different matter, t.j. it's interesting how the president approached this. in a holiday cheer, getting the crowd in to it. laughing with the people. not a bellicose president at all. however, if you look at what house aides are saying and members of congress reacting just in the few minutes since the president finished talking, it's on the republican side, i should say, not receiving his comments well at all and view it as an attempt by the president to jam them to create a sense of momentum that a deal is all but done but it is not all but done according to to some of them. there's an issue of sequestration. the argument from republicans and some democrats, t.j., well, hey, this was supposed to be the trigger. this is supposed to be the apocalyptic scenario to force us to finally do something and kicking it down the road yet again. republicans say if we kick it down the road, t
this time around. >> even mike huckabee couldn't have beaten this guy, huh? >> you tried to get me on this before. i think huckabee would have been a great candidate for us and i think we could have been beat obama because we would have been able to frame the issues differently. >> perhaps more authenticity. >> but thanks for trying. >> i want to hear you say it some day. great journalism. it's the stuff that i eat for breakfast. chip saltsman, happy new year to both you guys. >>> up next, the viral videos that define the political scene that define the political scene this past year. a look back. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> back to "hardball." now to the sideshow. some unwanted attention to mike crapo. one of the last places you want to be is the police station after getting stopped for driving under the influence. that's where senator crapo ended up after running a red light and then failed a sobriety test. crapo released a statement apologizing for his actions but something else about the situation is not getting lost if had the kerfuffle. as a mormon he has
